“We’re in the midst of a stone move­ment,” says Bar­bara Sal­lick when we ask her what trend she’s into right now. “Tex­tured stones make you imag­ine how the earth was formed – what was flow­ing a gazil­lion years ago to make that shape, colour or tex­ture.” It’s this type of think­ing that makes Bar­bara a trend­set­ter in the de­sign world. In the ’70s, Bar­bara was em­ployed by the Yale Univer­sity Art Gallery while her hus­band, Robert, worked for the fam­ily’s plumb­ing busi­ness. Her keen eye for de­sign and her pas­sion for his­tory and ar­chi­tec­ture, paired with Robert’s en­gi­neer­ing ex­per­tise, led the cou­ple to cre­ate Wa­ter­works, a lux­ury bath com­pany whose long-stand­ing mis­sion is “to re­store the bath to its right­ful place within the home – and to do so in a man­ner suited to modern fam­ily life.”
